Built in 1910 on the site of the old stables which once belonged to the Fishpond Hotel, The Grand Pavilion was once called the Kursel. It was built by the community, for the community, to provide a welcome meeting place and entertainment venue for locals and the many tourists visiting Matlock Bath as result of its natural thermal springs, caverns and local Peak District attractions.

Over the years the building has played host to many different and varied types of entertainment, such as theatre, dances and a tea rooms, and it showed patriotic films and held fundraising concerts during the second world war. More recently it has been used as a concert venue and a nightclub. The building is now owned by the Friends of the Pavilion Group; a charity whose sole purpose is to restore the building back to its former glory.


Like most old buildings with history the Grand Pavilion tells a great paranormal story, well known in the local area for its mysterious hauntings. Haunted Company ourselves have conducted many paranormal investigations and have come across various spirits and entities including those of children running around the corridors, a mysterious and unpleasant entity in the cellar area and a malevolent spirit residing under the stage!

In the Dome at the very top of the building lurks the poltergeist spirits presumed to be two workmen who were killed when the Pavilion was being built, and who are known to throw and break things. In addition to these there have been reports of unexplained footsteps, voices and sounds and we have caught several mysterious shadows, mists and orbs from all areas of the building.


The Grand Pavilion is available to book during the months of September to April only due to other events taking place during the rest of the year
